    For third time I had the pleasure to accompany some great dogs and their handlers into the hunting field this last weekend.
    What started out as a challenge to me as a photographer became an event I am starting to look forward to with great excitement.
    The images were taken during the NUCS (National Upland Classic Series) hunting event hosted by the Verdigris Valley Quail and Upland Wildlife Federation
    Independence, KS.

    I was in pure amazement to witness how much fun those dogs had in the field, and how focused most of them are.
    Observing the handlers when they missed a shot and shared their feelings freely is, at times very amusing.
    It shows that the time and afford raising and training the dogs is only part of the dogs success.
    A good shooter is required to make an outstanding dog a winner, and give him/her the placing he/she deserves.

     

    As someone who has not fired a fire arm of any kind, never less a shotgun I have to admit,that during my first few trials I startled from the noise.

     

    A highlight so far was being able to accompany dogs and handlers to 'double' event. Two dogs, to hunters, six birds = twice the fun and excitement.

     

    All the spectators, spouses, judges and organizers have always been welcoming, kind and patient answering my questions.

     

    With a lot of advice from the judges in the field, and hunters I beginning to learn what and where to to for.

     

    I almost forgot to mention, that once I learned that some of the dogs are worth more $$, then the car I am showing up in, it did make me cautious not to step on their tails. ;)
